Saturday , February 09 , 2019 | Time: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm | Cost: $10 – $16

CelebrateFamily.us - Find fun activities and things to do with kids in the San Francisco Bay area.

Sensory Friendly Hours are a time for families to enjoy a quieter, less-crowded visit to The Tech at a discounted rate. This opportunity may be appealing to parents of children who have mobility challenges, struggle to communicate or become easily overwhelmed by stimuli.

Guests are welcome to stay beyond noon, however at that time the museum will open to the general public and some accommodations will no longer be available.

Tickets for Sensory Friendly Hours may be purchased in advance or at the door.  Membership benefits apply; please call Group Reservations for tickets 408-294-8324 option 3.

During these hours, The Tech will offer:

  • A smaller crowd capacity.

  • Lower audio volume on exhibits.

  • Well-lit areas in all galleries.

  • Quiet rooms with calm-down kits.

  • IMAX film  played at lower volume. 11 a.m. showtime; first come, first served.
  • Welcoming and well-trained staff members.
